Rex Curry, JD Biography

Attorney and Professor
Con to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"

“The entire Pledge of Allegiance (in addition to the explicit 2-word deification [‘under God’]) is unconstitutional in government’s schools due to its anti libertarian use for the worship of government and in light of its history as the origin of the salute of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.”
